It’s been a long time coming, it’s a little late arriving (in time, that is, for the 30th anniversary of the event), and I’ve been even slower to announce it, but here it is:

Three Thousand and Thirteen front cover

Three Thousand and Thirteen is a 7×7 hard cover (with glossy dust jacket!), full colour photo book.

Artist Erin Clarke revisits various sites of the 1981 Toronto Bath House Riots, retracing the path of her involvement and weaving a personal narrative with the unfolding of this momentous event in Canadian sexual politics.

“Erin Clarke’s photography is sharp and playful, and the accompanying text – a kind of prosetry – defies clear categorization. Clarke is thoughtful and brave in her excavation of personal and public queer histories. ‘Three Thousand and Thirteen’ shows art and imagination as integral parts of a larger movement towards personal and political liberation.”

Elizabeth Ruth, author of Smoke
